Mike Hinge 029

Mike Hinge - Sign - Interstate USA Freeway Construction. White heavy board with stencilled enamel paint? Approximate size 40x50cm. Date unknown. Bottom right hand corner Mike Hinge is written in block capitols.

This piece is so different to what I have seen of Mike Hinge's other work, it looks a bit European (except for the Fact it has USA written in large letters) it reminds me of Peter Saville's work for the New Order album Movement 1981 or more correctly Fortunato Depero's poster 1932.

Does anyone know if this sign ever got used?
